The first unified LV2 release, LV2 1.0.0, is out.
This release merges the previous lv2core package with all the official
extension packages, as well as example plugins, lv2specgen, and
additional data. From a developer point of view, the biggest change is
that all LV2 API headers can be used by simply checking for the single
pkg-config package "lv2" (for compatibility the previous "lv2core"
package is still installed). Implementations are encouraged to abandon
the "copy paste headers" practice and depend on this package instead.
With this release, several new extensions have become stable that
together greatly increase the power of LV2: atom, log, parameters,
patch, port-groups, port-props, resize-port, state, time, worker.

The 2.5.0 Release of ZynAddSubFX is now available.
This release is mainly focused on fixing some of the core architectural flaws
that have historically existed.
As a result this release should behave much better under jack and interfacing
with the realtime side of things is *much* easier now.
To give a qualitative feel of how much has changed, git diff --stat indicates
that around 27k lines of code have been added in this release with just 2k
lines of code between with the two previous releases.
Additionally the callgraph of the realtime safe hazards can be seen in two
green nodes are functions which are annotated realtime
red nodes are realtime functions which call a possibly unsafe function
black nodes are possibly unsafe functions
Both images were generated via https://github.com/fundamental/stoat
As can be seen, the number of faults in 2.5.0 boils down to one remaining set
of memory allocation issues and a few mostly harmless printfs, whereas 2.4.4
had numerous deeply ingrained issues.
While that aspect might not be of much interest to general users, exposure of
virtually all parameters over OSC and experimental MIDI learn may be.
To try out the MIDI learn, simply use middle click on a knob/slider
and then feed in a midi CC and the system will attempt to create a binding
out of the two.

Enjoy and please report bugs,
With some help I found many missing but needed features in osc2midi. These
have been resolved, tested, and now, I think they're ready for release.
OSC2MIDI is a highly configurable osc to jack midi (and back) bridge for
linux. It is useful for controlling jack midi apps with a mobile device, or
controlling OSC apps like Ardour or the Non-Daw applications with a midi
device. Configuration is done through a simple text file, with several
-can now use constant arguments or even ranges of constants in the OSC or
the Midi message to map lots of messages quickly
-You can linearly scale values on the osc or midi message side making it
much easier if making maps for converting midi to osc
-You can map values from osc or midi messages to multiple values on the

::::::::::::::::: AREAS OF INTEREST :::::::::::::::::
Relevant areas for ICAD include but are not limited to:
- Aesthetics, Culture, & Philosophy
- Design, Theory & Methods
- Technology: Tools & Applications
- Perceptual and Cognitive Aspects
- Usability & Evaluation
Special Focus of ICAD15:
- Exploration of Data through Sound
- Sonification as Art
- Sonic Interaction Design
- Interaction design
- Input technologies
- Auditory Information Design
- Spatial Audio
- Binaural virtual acoustics
- Loudspeaker-based sound field synthesis
Accepted papers will be included in the published proceedings and made publicly available in the
Georgia Tech SMARTech system (http:// smartech.gatech.edu/). The types of submissions solicited for
::::::::::::::::: PAPERS AND POSTERS:::::::::::::::::
Paper and poster submissions will be 4-8 pages in length, including all figures and references. Typical
paper contributions are between 6 - 8 pages, and typical poster contributions are 4 - 5 pages long. Full
papers should describe work that offers a substantial contribution to the field of auditory display.
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give an oral presentation of their work, and at least one
author must present the work at the conference for the paper to appear in the proceedings. Poster
submissions should describe both finished work and work in late stages of progress. Work that is
complete enough that meaningful conclusions can be drawn at the time of submission are encouraged.
Authors of accepted submissions will be invited to participate in a poster and/or demonstration session,
and at least one author must present the work at the conference for the paper to appear in the
published proceedings. When weighing the decision to submit to poster and demonstration sessions, we
encourage authors to consider their work in relation to the potential positive benefits (both to authors
and their audiences) afforded by the personal interactions that occur in this type of session.
Authors of selected full papers will be invited to submit an extended version (up to 12 pages) of their
papers for publication in a Special Issue of the Journal on Multimodal User Interfaces (JMUI): Auditory
::::::::::::::::: EXTENDED ABSTRACTS :::::::::::::::::
Extended abstracts include, but are not limited to late-breaking results, works in early stages of
progress, novel methodologies, unique or controversial theoretical positions, and discussions of
unsuccessful research or null findings. Submissions for extended abstracts require a proceedings paper
of up to 2 pages in length. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to give a short presentation of
their work, and at least one author must present the work at the conference for the abstract to appear in
the published proceedings. The deadline of the extended abstracts is later to allow very recent
contributions in the field.
Visda Goudarzi and Areti Andreopoulou
::::::::::::::::: MUSIC AND INSTALLATIONS:::::::::::::::::
We invite submissions of music and sound installations. Sonification should be a constitutive element of
the proposed works. Priority will be given to works employing space and interaction as additional
dimensions to an artistic data exploration. We therefore especially encourage the submission of
multichannel electroacoustic or acousmatic pieces and interactive sound installations.
The works will be reviewed by an international panel of sound and sonification experts. Preference will
be given to submissions that are technically feasible and have a clear documentation of the setup. At
least one of the authors who wish to have their works presented at ICAD15 must register and attend to
the conference. As we would like to extend the presentation of these works beyond the time limits of the
conference, authors of accepted works are encouraged to present their work also online using the
Research Catalogue (http://www.researchcatalogue.net), an international database for artistic research.
The conference page will provide a portal to these presentations.
Johannes Zmölnig, Ypatios Grigoriadis, and Gerhard Eckel
We will provide child care during the conference and workshops. If you travel with a kid/ kids please
drop us an email ahead of time.

New builds available at: https://forge.ircam.fr/p/OM/downloads/
OpenMusic homepage: http://repmus.ircam.fr/openmusic/home
- new package scripts for RPM and DEB, to take care of necessary
(32-bit) dependencies for OM. (OM is still 32-bit only from lack of
access to 64-bit lw-compiler.)
- the music-fonts OM uses (omfonts) get installed as part of the main
package, ie. the extra package is no longer needed
- a non-standard dependency: libsdif.so ("SDIF: Sound Description
Interchange Format" - http://sdif.sourceforge.net/) - is provided as
RPM- and DEB-packages at the download site
- PortMidi handles midi i/o, using the same code on all 3 supported
platforms (Linux, OSX, Windows)
- fluidsynth is no longer part of the OM-application, instead users are
expected to connect to their preferred MIDI-synth to play back MIDI
- various new features and bug-fixes
Packages are checked on Fedora 20+21, and Ubuntu 14.04.1.
Thanks for all bug-reports.
The main feature of this release is the consolidation and completion of changes
to root directories, banks and instruments along with MIDI control of these.
GUI sync and error check improvements
Instrrment name ambiguities resolved
Obligatory bug fixes
